IP is vital to your organization, and Tech Transfer is the crucial intersection where that IP is most at risk – the place where inadequate or outdated IT security leaves your IP vulnerable to carelessness, tampering and outright theft. Any data breach – even an accidental exposure of data – has costly fall-out for Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), including patent rights here and around the world. The ultimate value of your IP relies on keeping it safe every step of the way, at-rest and in-motion: from storage to transmission, and through all phases of collaboration.
Peace of Mind for You, Secure and Easy Collaboration for your Researchers
Export control and IP issues are paramount in global collaborations. Data loss prevention, auditing, compliance, data management procedures – security is an essential component in all. But it has to be available in a platform that does not slow down your researchers. SafelyLocked provides extraordinary security in easy-to-use flexible applications that don’t impede the workflow.
Consider how our leading edge technology protects your valuable research and IP Rights, and what makes SafelyLocked far superior to any other tools you are currently using for your secure collaboration needs.
Marketing Hype v True Security - How Do You Know If Your IP Is Really Safe?
All collaboration tools claim to be very secure. But the truth is that the tools you are using now to move, store, and share your data are probably easy-to-use, but not very secure (in spite of what you’ve been told). What passes for security will not stand up to the threats of today’s sophisticated hackers or determined insider malfeasance.
For starters, how do you break through the noise of marketing hype and find real security – the kind of security that is going to keep your IP safe? Here are some questions to ask about the collaboration tools your organization is using:
Security and Your Researchers Working Remotely: The Coffee Shop/Airporty/Wherever Dilemma
Increased Productivity and Reach = Bigger Security Risks for Your IP:
Research has never been more collaborative or global. Your researchers have unprecedented flexibility to conduct research and collaborate from virtually anywhere in the world, over multiple kinds of devices. Frequently, this means working from wherever they can, on the fly. This creates extraordinary opportunities for productivity, but also creates exponential risks for data security – Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) can too easily become Bring-Your-Own-Disaster.
Whether collaborating from a local coffee shop, an airport lounge or a remote research station, SafelyLocked technology allows your researchers to send and receive Data securely regardless of the inadequate security of its transmission path.
IP and Audio/Video Files - Did You Know That This Data Is Not Being Encrypted?
Your Researchers are generating increasingly large files, including Audio and Video, and storing them to the Cloud – Can You Afford to Risk the Damage to Your Institution if this valuable IP Research is compromised or stolen outright?
Gigabytes v Terabytes: With SafelyLocked, Size Does Not Matter
Your Researchers are generating increasingly larger files - if it hasn't happened already, it's only a matter of time before scalability impacts all aspects of IP Research: workflow and timelines, efficiency, and the seamless security you need to ensure the safety and integrity of your Data.
Easy and Efficient Collaboration With Industry Partners That Does Not Compromise Your IP
Collaboration with your Industry Partners can be a vital link in the evolution of your Researchers’ IP on its way to realizing its full commercial potential. But the risk of compromising that IP increases in kind: The moment you share your Data outside your organization, that Data is considerably more vulnerable to cyber attacks.
Add to this the growing threat of industrial espionage, where the appropriation of IP is precisely the treasure targeted by cyber criminals. This can come in the form of cyber attacks from nation-states, competing organizations, or even insider malfeasance from within your own organization or that of your Industry Partners.
